CHAMPION STAKES UPDATE.
Despite the rain the ground has hardly eased from the forecast good. I am replacing my original tip on Declaration Of War[ non runner] with TRADING LEATHER. He really needs it fast but he should get away with it. Our day is turning around after a horrible start and we are in profit. I suggest a 1 pt win on TRADING LEATHER at 9/2 and I really hope Manning goes a breakneck pace to bring his stamina reserves into play. He looks superb in the pre parade ring.
